Wip Zipper Pouch

I embroidered this little bluebird yesterday on a scrap of white on white fabric. I wasn't sure exactly what I was going to do with him,  but he worked perfectly when trimmed down to a 2 1/2 inch square.


After thinking about it this morning, I dumped all my crumbs in a big basket. There are a lot of them!


Then I put the little bird down on a piece of 9 x 11 inch piece of batting, and started adding pieces from the crumb basket. Once it was trimmed it looked like this: 


Then I went ahead and made and trimmed a second piece the same size as the first.


Now all I have to do is add a lining and zipper, sew it all together and it will be a cute little zipper pouch!
